Sasha Cohen Marries Tom May on Cape Cod
"We will cherish the many memories we made," the new bride said of her weekend wedding on the Cape
Sasha Cohen has tied the knot!
The 2006 Olympic silver medalist and three-time World Championship medalist married her boyfriend of two years, Tom May, in a private Massachusetts wedding on Saturday.
The intimate ceremony was held at Wianno Club in Osterville. The figure skater wore her hair pulled back and donned a stunning beaded gown with a plunging neckline.
“I just can’t believe how quickly the whole weekend went by. It was absolutely magical. We were deeply moved to share such a personal commitment with our family and closest friends as the sun set on the Cape,” Cohen, 31, told Entertainment Tonight.
She added, “We felt very loved and will cherish all the wonderful moments we had this weekend. I can’t wait to see all the photos!”
The newlyweds met at a Harvard Business School party in 2014 – but the figure skater revealed to PEOPLE that it wasn’t love at first sight between her and May, a hedge fund manager.
“Our first date was great, but I didn’t know he was the one until our fourth or fifth date, and then I knew that I had found something incredibly special,” Cohen told PEOPLE. “From then on, I absolutely knew that this was the man I wanted to spend my life with and things moved quickly.”
May proposed to Cohen during a two-month travel expedition in July of 2015. While taking a sunset walk along a quiet Provincetown, Massachusetts, beach, he popped the question.
“I was absolutely speechless and said of course,” Cohen told PEOPLE at the time.
“The last 48 hours has been a tremendous whirlwind for Tom and I. Thank you to all our family and friends for traveling from far and wide to join us on our wedding day. We will cherish the many memories we made with you this past weekend! #mayday #capecod #wianno #weddings #summer #time #memories #family #friendsforever,” she captioned a sweet Instagram snap of the newlyweds by the ocean.
Cohen says her favorite moment from her wedding night was “walking into the reception for the first time as a married couple as everyone clapped and cheered – the room was magical,” according to ET.
It’s been a big year for the former Olympian, who was inducted into the U.S. Figure Skating Hall of Fame in January.
